As many of you know when my daughter was 17 I received a phone call that changed all our lives. My daughter had been in a catastrophic accident. The first night they told me she likely wouldn’t make it through the night. She survived that night, and the next. As the days passed while she remained in a coma, we were told she would would likely never walk or talk and to prepare for the worst. Three hospitals, many months and the most amazing medical care along with her fighting spirit and she was able to come home! We are so blessed! She is a walking, talking, beautiful adult who continues to fight through challenges. Without the research on brain injuries my daughter would likely not have made it and certainly not to the fully functioning adult that she has become.

Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado (BIAC) is the go-to resource for help and services for survivors of an injury to the brain, their families, and providers.

Survivors of a brain injury must fight through unimaginable mental and physical challenges. There isn’t a cure for brain injuries; they don’t grow back like hair or fade like scars. While no two brain injuries are the same, they do have a few things in common. They are always present and dealing with the effects is a lifelong, day-in-day-out process. They require brain injury survivors to navigate in a brand-new world as they fight to establish a new normal.
Funding is critical for BIAC to continue supporting survivors in our state, which is why I am reaching out to family and friends to share my exciting commitment to participate in the 2021 Pikes Peak Challenge Summit Hike. The Pikes Peak Challenge will test my mental and physical boundaries as I raise money and awareness for those who have suffered an injury to the brain. When I finish, I will have hiked 13 miles and 7,400 vertical feet to the 14, 115 ft Pikes Peak Summit.

To reach my goal, I need your help. Please consider donating to help me reach my fundraising goal of $200. (or more!) Check out my donation page to make a contribution or to learn more about BIAC.
